I gave Fela Kuti a shot in college when I was very much into Bob Marley amd I had a housemate who listened to his stuff, but I couldn't get into it...I've always found the music tediuous and his keyboard playing at times sounds like somebody sitting around plinking away in their living room...they at times suffer from the too many people on stage syndrome...the best part of the video was the great horn players...FK horns were the best musical part of his act, always with the same bass line the whole number ;D

Some of those same insanely great horn players from Fela's old band Egypt 88 (including Fela's brother), now play with Fela's son, Seun Kuti. Without a doubt, THE hottest, tightest horn section playing today. Whether you miss seeing Fela, or if you've never seen him and only heard of those legendary shows, Seun Kuti in concert is a must see.

I have no idea who this dude is. At the height of the reggae craze was of course Mr. Marley, Peter Tosh, the Mighty Diamonds, Jimmy Cliff and one heavy duty real RASTA
named I believe was Roz Michaels.The weed smoke was so thick
for this sized club the fire marshall came, but he let the show go on. This had to be up in Marin but to this day I have no idea where it took place.
